County Seeking Public Feedback for Bus Stop Improvements
Users of Boulder County’s transit system are invited to share their thoughts on the county’s upcoming bus stop enhancement program. The project will include the design, purchase and installation of enhancements and new fixtures at approximately 50 bus stops throughout Boulder County. Residents and commuters can visit the program webpage for more information and take a survey to help choose the bus stop locations. Only existing bus stops will be enhanced and no new bus stop locations will be created. Some bus stops that have minimal fixtures will be enhanced (adding a bench to an existing concrete pad, for example). Other stops that have no existing fixtures may receive concrete pads, curbs and other features. The program is funded by the State of Colorado’s FASTER revenue and matching funds from the Boulder County Transportation Department. The bus stop enhancements will be completed by the summer of 2013 and will be located in unincorporated Boulder County as well as within the county’s cities and towns. For more information, contact Jared Hall at email@example.com or 303-441-4958.
